Tapas24

Boqueria Market

Boqueria Market

You would not expect eating in a market hall, would you?

This is something you definitely have to try out, as the market in the heart of the city is actually hosting some of Barcelona’s best restaurants, featuring the freshest fish, most impressive homemade pizzas and incredible tapas that the city has to offer. An array of tempting little bars and restaurants include El Quim, Pintxo or Antonio’s.

We found out that Antony Bourdain was at Bar Pintxo the week after we left, and we’re still wondering why he couldn’t adjust his schedule to suit us!

Acontraluz

Is this garden a restaurant or this restaurant a garden? Come check it out for yourself and be the judge. This nomadic kitchen is a celebration to good food and good conversation and the perfect place for a latte with a friend.

Komomoto

Here’s one for all you foodies out there! Komomoto serves up a range of Nikkei style food, which is a type of cuisine developed by Japanese immigrants in Peru throughout the century, promising for interesting dishes that aren’t always for the faint hearted. Sample the range of ceviches to  chicharrones with nori seaweed and crispy rice, in a modern tavern with tables for sharing, in the heart of el Born neighborhood.

 

Bubo

“Tourists come in and want to know, ‘Is it a jewelry shop?’ ” says Carles Mampel, the 39-year-old award-winning pastry chef behind bubo and bubo bar. His establishment is actually a one-two punch of haute chocolatier and new-wave tapas bar near the Basilica Santa Maria del Mar, deep in  Barcelona’s El Born neighborhood, but “people eat with their eyes,” he says. – NYTimes

Bubo

Bubo is a high end chocolate factory. Not the most conventional combo, Bubo’s pulls it off with flying colors. The petite deserts here are truly works of art that look so spectacular you will almost feel bad for eating them, but only almost, as the mouth watering treats will tempt you into devouring them almost instantly. Voted World’s Best Chocolatier in 2005, Bubo’s is truly deserving of this award.
